I didn’t quite enjoy Little Boy Big Boy

I guess I’m still quite conservative, especially when it comes to juxtaposing minors and homosexuality, because I cringed at the scenes in Little Boy Big Boy where the young nephew is exposed to the gay relationship between Paolo Rivero’s and Douglas Robinson’s characters (though not as much as when I saw Dose).

Anyway, I didn’t quite like Little Boy Big Boy as much as I expected. The story was pretty shallow and the ending was too contrived for my taste. And the crying scenes? Ugh, I didn’t feel that all those tears were deserved given the context. If you haven’t seen the movie, then watch the trailer; you can pretty much get the whole story from it.

That said, I’ve always had a minor crush on Paolo Rivero and seeing him making out with cutie Douglas Robinson almost makes the movie worth seeing. The problem is, the film was cut by censors to an inch of its life so I didn’t get to see the extended footage of the torrid kissing shower scene. And pardon me, I find Douglas’ voice a bit distracting.

I found the orgy scene (where Paolo and Douglas’ characters first meet) very intriguing. I haven’t been to an O party and I guess what was shown in the movie is how such a party can go. Can anybody else confirm? :-)

That's the thing with em gay movies coming out in most countries.. They're like glorified soft porn cause if you really think about it, half of it is just sex.

Another reason why I would never pay money to pay them "filmmakers"
